Chapter 21: Verse 123-130



123.-124.How many universes and how many Brahmäs are manifested and unmanifested by the playful movement of His eyebrows? He is the death of death. He is the time that ends time. He is the creator of the creator Brahmä. O father, please take shelter of Him. He will protect you.

125.-126.In one of Brahmä's days and nights 28 Indras live out their lives and die, one after another. Brahmä lives for 108 years of such days and nights. Still, Brahmä's entire life is hardly an eyeblink for the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is beyond the modes of material nature. This is a grotesque joke: to worship Indra instead of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

127.O Närada, after speaking these words, Lord Kåñëa became silent. Then the assembled sages praised Him in many words.

128.Nanda was very happy. The hairs of his body stood up. His eyes were filled with tears. A father is pleased to be defeated by his powerful son.

129.Saying, So be it," Nanda accepted Lord Kåñëa's command and did everything Kåñëa had said.

130.Respectfully and happily, Nanda worshiped Govardhana Hill, the great sages, the learned brähmaëas, the cows, and the sacred fire.
